Aldi’s iconic Hanging Egg Chair went on sale last weekend, but if you don’t already own one it is too late.

The rattan hanging chair, which is a favourite of Mrs Hinch and Stacey Solomon’s, actually sold out in minutes.

On Sunday 4 April, thousands queued virtually to get their hands on the coveted chair, following the recent ease in lockdown restrictions which means we can now socialise in gardens in groups of six or less.

As a consequence outdoor furniture has been selling out everywhere, but Aldi’s chair took this to the next level.

It went on sale at 8 am, but by 8:15 am the chair was already sold out.

More than 200,000 people had joined the queue to get on to the site, according to Birmingham live.

A message on the supermarket’s website told would-be customers: “We’re very sorry, but there are currently lots of people trying to access the Aldi website.

“We’ve automatically placed you in a queue. Don’t worry about refreshing – this page will update automatically as soon as you can enter the site.”

Many took to Twitter to vent their frustrations, with one writing: “What do I do now…? I’ve queued for 40 minutes and it’s not ready?! #Aldi

“How the hell have I got caught up it the Aldi Egg Chair hysteria?!”

Another added: “Most stressful Easter egg hunt ever! But GOT ONE!!”

A third explained the lengths she would go to: “I’ve had a broken night of sleep waking up every 30 minutes to refresh the website to make sure I stayed in the queue but I FINALLY GOT MYSELF THE ALDI EGG CHAIR!!!!!!!”

The rattan hanging chair, which is suspended from a powder-coated iron frame can be placed either in a garden or indoor, has a padded charcoal grey seat. It costs just £149.99.

While the egg chair will give you the best seat outdoors, it is actually suitable for indoor use as well – if you’ve got the perfect spot.
